When Your Calling Seems Vague and Unclear, You’re on the Right Track

Most people don’t know what to do with their lives. And that’s okay.

“We see in order to move; we move in order to see.” — William Gibson

Lesson 1: Don’t wait for clarity

“I have never had clarity. I have only ever had trust.” — Mother Teresa

But why is failure something to be avoided instead of embraced?

Takeaway: Clarity comes with action.

Lesson 2: Just because it’s hard doesn’t mean you should quit

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” — Aristotle

Takeaway: You become what you practice.

Lesson 3: Commit, but be prepared to pivot

“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal — a commitment to excellence — that will enable you to attain the success you seek.” — Mario Andretti

Takeaway: When in doubt, commit.
